I was watching the ARgos-Sask game last night as a neutral observer. In fact I want Sask to win so that we'd have a big showdown for first next week in Hogtown between the Als and the ARgos.
But really, what should have been an easy win the for the Riders was made close by the pathetic quarterbacking of Kerry Joseph.
First off, its obvious the guy has happy feet. He's always bouncing around back there. He doesn't get himself set when he throws the ball. Thus he misses wide open targets. I lost count of the overthrows and underthrows he had last night.
One glaring play was he had Fantuz wide open on a long bomb but because Joseph was hopping around like a kangaroo his pass sailed weakly beyond Fantuz's reach. But I bet you Henry Burris or Dickenson or any other top QB in the league would have made that pass.
Then there was the screwed up handoff between him and Keith. Costing the Riders a field goal.
I had the sense watching Joseph that he just doesn't know what he's doing back there. The Riders have a good defence, but its offence is poorly run with strange calls, and your QB to me isn't the guy who will get you far. The fact he has happy feet tells all.
